3rd Workshop on Modelling of Biological Cells, Fluid Flow and Microfluidics 2020

Location: Hotel Rozsutec, Vratna, Slovakia

Date: 9th - 13th February 2020

SIG: SIG37 Biomedical fluid mechanics

Organisers: SIG37 Biomedical fluid mechanics: PhD Kristina Kovalcikova, University of Zilina, Slovakia

This workshop aims to strengthen the network of researchers doing their research in domains close to numerical modelling of cell flow and to bridge the existing gap between modelling and experiments. It will be an opportunity to bring scientists from both groups together, and to support the cooperation between them. The workshop serves as a platform for the exchange of ideas within the community and also provides opportunities for informal meetings of the participants.

The focus is on building cooperation across computational and experimental disciplines. It will give the community of PyOIF users opportunity to discuss the developments of their models and the simulation tool.

Primary topics of the workshop:

  • modeling and simulations of cells in flow
  • PyOIF module (part of ESPResSo) as tool for simulating flow of cells
  • fabrication of microfluidic devices
  • microfluidic experiments with cells or other objects in flow
  • image-processing of recordings from biological experiments
  • simulation software
  • statistical analysis of data from biological experiments and simulations
  • and related topics

The workshop is organized by Cell-in-fluid Biomedical Modelling & Computations Group, Faculty of Management Science and Informatics, University of Zilina, Slovakia. Previous editions of the workshop took place in 2017 at Vratna, Slovakia, and in 2014 at ICNAAM conference, Greece.

Invited speakers:

  • Dmitry Fedosov (FZ Jülich)
  • Annie Vialat (CINaM Marseille)
  • Jochen Guck (TU Dresden)
  • Thomas Schrefl (U St. Pölten)
  • Sabine Alebrand (IMM Fraunhofer)
  • Simon Mendez (U Montpelier)

Organizing committee:

  • Ivan Cimrak Iveta Jancigova
  • Kristina Kovalcikova Monika Smieskova Iveta Belosovicova
